naptown roller girls + star wars

It’s Wednesday! Better than Monday! Better than Tuesday! Today I have pictures. Lots of pictures.

Indianapolis has a roller derby team called the Naptown Roller Girls. We have seen them twice. Both times, they kicked much ass. And somehow, both times, we have ended up in the audience for their annual Star Wars themed bout. I love it – both the derby and the Star Wars.

Ok, sorry for the mix of sizes. Some of these are from my phone. Some of them are from the husband’s phone. Apparently, when you select “small” on the iphone, it sends them in postage stamp size.

This first one is the cover of the program. I love the title of the bout: Looking for Love in Alderaan Places. How freaking great is that?

This is me! As you can see, I had some blue in my hair. I didn’t get a pic with the legion because I was busy guarding our seats. The bout was sold out, so places to plant the butts were scarce. I had a man almost sit on my arm. They seriously need to hold these things at a place with better seating.

This is the shirt I bought. It’s Boba Fett’s helmet and the Naptown Roller Girls skull logo. I can’t wait to wear it!

The roller girls are warming up in this pic.

This is my favorite picture. The 501st did this thing where they pushed the roller girls around the track. The pic shows Darth engaged in this activity. I find it quite hilarious.

The Stars Wars people are from the 501st Legion. They are very nice, always willing to pose for pictures.

 

Here’s a link to their website – http://www.501st.com/

 

Here’s a link to the Naptown Roller Girls on Facebook. The pictures there are way better than my silly phone pictures –
